How to bring back Rococo bedroom furniture to original color?

last modified: 5 years ago

I inherited this Rococo armoire and dresser mirror from my grandparents. It is more than 40 years old. My grandfather was a smoker so it has turned yellow. I tried several products from rubbing alcohol, plain soap and water, to a paint thinner to clean it. I stop using paint thinner (bottom drawer) because it seemed to damage it. The original color was off white. What can I use

in hope of restoring all pieces to the original color? It was difficult getting up three flights of stairs so it can not be moved. I thought about using chalk paint but my grandmother feels it would ruin it. Thank you in advance for all your help.
